To the editor:
The Nov. 6 ballot will include candidates for Lee Memorial Health System Board of Directors.
We strongly recommend Sandy Cohen, a candidate for Lee Memorial Health System Board of Directors, District 3. Dr. Cohen is a retired pediatrician who received his undergraduate and medical degree from Johns Hopkins University and his higher education administration certificate from Harvard. He has served as a professor, medical school department chair and Chief of Pediatrics at Wayne State University as well as serving as Provost of Wayne State. He also served as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Detroit Receiving Hospital and as chair of the Detroit Police Commission. He is currently a volunteer member of several LMHS boards and committees.
We have known Sandy for more than years and our friend has a warm personality and possesses a unique combination of medical, non-medical, administrative and financial experience that would complement the other board members and provide the Lee Memorial Health System strong leadership.
